Lion Mask

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

Today’s activities were at the provisional housing in Northern Hebita Park #2.


ーOnchan-Shisho’s reportー

Aichan and I worked as a team today.  We went for walks carrying some of the kids, chatted in the lounge, made bead jewelry, and did homework.  It was a slow and relaxed visit.  At least that was my initial impression, but when I sit back and think about it, a lot happened during those 2 hours.

‘T’kun fell from the railing he was hanging off of.  I was afraid he might have broken a bone.  He cried for a little bit, however before long he was running around and cheerful again.

One of the girls was in a bad mood but by the end of the day she was having fun with the others.

It’s only a brief period of time but I realize it’s important the children have a place where they can interact with others.  A place where they can work problems out among themselves or might sometimes get disciplined by the other parents.  I think having emotions and being able to express them is wonderful.

I have an update on the lion mask.  The shape is roughly carved out and I am working on the ears and the lumps? or horns? on the head.
